Whether you believe Denise Richards hooked up with Brandi Glanville or not, many people feel that Brandi didn’t tell her story in an organic, spontaneous manner. You’re telling me that Brandi just happened to be sitting in Kim Richards‘ car with a microphone on and that Kyle Richards unexpectedly invited her in without any prior knowledge that Brandi had some tea to spill? I don’t think so.
There was nothing at-all-spontaneous about that one, especially since Brandi isn’t even a cast member on this show anymore. After Denise flipped out at the mention of a “threesome” in the vicinity of her teenage daughters’ ears, the women claimed that they felt mom-shamed. So, more likely than not, Kyle already heard about the hookup via Kim or Brandi herself because why would Kim get in full hair and makeup just to drop off some dresses to Kyle while she’s filming with Teddi Mellencamp? Sure, that wasn’t orchestrated at all…
Former Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan Edmonds and her soon-to-be ex-husband Jim Edmonds finally seem to be moving on. Meghan found out that her dad-jean wearing ex was allegedly cheating on her with the nanny. Then Jim filed for divorce on their fifth wedding anniversary. Ouch.
Jim even called the police on the former RHOC star after she had a night out, questioning her ability to care for their kids. Now Jim is dating Kortnie O’Connor. That wouldn’t be a big deal, except that Kortnie participated in a threesome with Jim and Meghan during their marriage.
The Real Housewives of Orange County cast has come under fire for their comments and behaviors during the coronavirus pandemic. Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Kelly Dodd all hung out in close proximity for a selfie, which sparked outrage among the fans. And David Beador’s fiancée and mother of his future child Lesley Cook shaded Shannon for this gathering. And, let’s not forget the many times that Kelly has made ignorant comments about coronavirus.
Previously demoted and eventually fired Housewife Vicki Gunvalson slammed the California governor for refusing to open up nail salons when she wanted to get a manicure. At the very beginning of the stay-at-home orders, Tamra Judge caught flack for keeping her gym open. And, most recently, the cast traveled to film a trip, which also incited criticism. And now, Shannon has revealed that she and all three of her daughters have tested positive for the coronavirus. Presumably, Shannon was not on the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip.
Real Housewives of Orange County’s resident youngin Gina Kirschenheiter was a bit of an underdog when it came to casting. She wasn’t your typical, over-botoxed Orange County housewife. Hell, she wasn’t even from Orange County – Gina hails from Long Island, NY. But since she joined the cast in season 13, she’s beat the odds on how long fans thought she would stay. As a testament to her staying power, she’s coming back for this upcoming season, which is currently filming.
But Gina has been through more than her fair share of drama since starting the show. As a housewife, she has been mostly unscathed. Her big fights consisted of going toe to toe with Vicki Gunvalson about not believing in God. But her personal life is another story. Back in 2018, Gina filed for divorce from her husband of 8 years, Matt Kirschenheiter. While they tried a few times to reconcile, Matt was arrested for domestic violence against Gina. He was charged with felony “corporal injury – on spouse/cohabitant” and felony “False imprisonment effected by violence, menace, fraud, or deceit.” Pretty heavy stuff.
Every former Real Housewife claims that she left the show to “pursue other opportunities,” but pretty much none of them ever quit. In fact, many of them are completely unprepared for life without those Bravo paychecks, overcharging for Cameo videos and peddling laxative teas on Instagram to support themselves and pay for heavily discounted Botox injections.
Sure, some of them are smart with their money, but, at this point, financial issues are a staple among the Housewives, especially the former cast members. It’s par for the course, in all honesty.
Jill Zarin may have been fired from Real Housewives of New York after Season 4, but she is still part of the drama on the sidelines. After her beloved husband Bobby Zarin’s death from cancer in January of 2018, Jill and former friend Bethenny Frankel reunited outside of Bobby’s memorial service while RHONY cameras were rolling.
Since then, Jill found love again with her boyfriend Gary Brody. The couple was even shown attending Luann de Lesseps’ Voodoo Halloween party. Jill seemed relaxed and happy.
Ok, what is going on with the Real Housewives of Orange County? It seems like they just cannot keep out of the media with negative press. I know they say all press is good press but in this case, I would have to disagree.
The show has already experienced a major shakeup before the season even started filming with the
firing exit of OG’s Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. And Vicki has landed herself in hot water with her comments on coronavirus. So has Tamra, thanks to pictures she posted of her out with friends, no masks in sight. Which brings us to the current cast member, Kelly Dodd. Where do I even start? Kelly has been vocal about her constant travel, along with her insensitive comments about the virus. At this point, Kelly should do us all a favor and delete her social media. Honestly, the only person I’m here for with this cast is newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke. I know people have conflicting feelings on her first season but hey, at least she’s not out there sharing inconsiderate memes about COVID.
Can I get an inflatable tube man dance and a wooooowwieeee!?! BAM! There’s some glitter in your face for good measure. Apparently, Lydia McLaughlin and her mother Judy Stirling from Real Housewives of Orange County are baaaAAAaack. Lydia was a total one season wonder…but TWICE. In season 8 Lydia boasted about her connection with her lord, Jesus. Meanwhile, her mom grappled with quitting “the pot” and keeping her feet off Vicki Gunvalson’s couch. In season 12 Lydia gave this show temporary new life when she rolled in looking like Charlie Chaplin. You know the scene. Never forget. I don’t even remember her mom in season 12. Must have been riveting.
Tamra Judge has even admitted she doesn’t think these recent seasons of RHOC have been their best. Can’t say I disagree. I miss the drama from Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino, and even Heather Dubrow. Call me crazy, but the TV was good. Lydia, on the other hand, already misses Vicki on her screen. Well with taste like that…
